Confirmed sighting: Terry's Chocolate Orange Segsations
Posted: 12:40 Fri 19-09-2003. Price: £3.49. Location: Sainsbury's, Southampton. Sub-flavours: See below. Nutritional unusualness: None noted.
"ChoccieMan" reports: OK, Christmas choccie is out therefore so are all the varieties of Chocolate Orange (we had White/ Snowball a couple of years ago, then they made Crunchball). This is an assortment of small segments of these varieties plus a couple of new ones (a dual layer one with dark chocolate as well as milk and one with puffed rice much like Cadbury's Dairy Milk Crispies). If you like chocolate orange you'll love these, because of their small size you're less likely to get the sickly feeling associated with munching lots of the normal size segments. The only thing I don't understand is that according to the box all the varieties have the same nutritional values. Oh, and Kraft helpfully point out that chocolate is best stored between 10 and 20 degrees C (like we all thought it was best to keep them on a sunny windowsill?!). They're so good let's hope these aren't a limited edition.
...Sorry, no Friday Face-off today as tons of top-notch sightings to get through (maybe it'll become the Fortnightly Face-off instead?), though you can debate the great "Mint vs Orange variants" controversy if you like (eg, these already sound like a vast improvement on Bendicks' ridiculous Mingles).

Comment: The mummy of me sampled orange after eights in Sainsburys a few days ago. She described them as having a powerful orange taste, much like an orange creme out of a box of Roses.
Hopefully these fine confections will be much better than the previous after eight abomination, the white choclate version. White chocolate is a delicate subtle taste, do not contaminate it with powerful mintage, it is WRONG.
